What is a literacy teacher

Additional qualification in literacy

Main content

We are pleased that you are interested in our Alpha-DaF certificate course.

If you want to teach in literacy courses, you need different approaches than in conventional German courses. Not only is the language taught, but also reading and writing. In order to acquire the written language, various sub-skills must be developed, including phonological awareness, good sound perception, motor skills and much more. The teacher must, among other things, have different methodological teaching offers in order to be able to address the different learning types of the participants. In this certificate course you will be prepared for this special work and the needs of this special target group.

On the following pages we have provided all the important information about studying and applying, as well as the necessary contact details. Under the heading “The most important things at a glance” you will find the basic information briefly presented. The course flyer also informs you about our certificate course.

We hope the information is useful to you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact the course coordinator.
